I love featuring family photography on the blog, especially when it is cute babies like Max who features in todays family shoot by Babb Photo. Since having my own baby I have found that I love looking at baby photos even more, I have a definite pull towards family photos, for that reason I am so glad that I started the real families feature on the blog, showing off great family photography in a natural and non posed way!
Having a photographer come to your home for a family shoot is a very personal thing, opposed to studio based work. However it results in a much more natural set of photos and often a much more relaxed baby. I am a big fan of this sort of un posed photography and just love featuring work of this kind on the blog.
When Laura from Babb Photos sent me in these gorgeous pictures I knew I had to share them with you. She was asked my Max’s mum to come and join them for the day and take some pictures of them as a family, just going about their day………the resulst are beautiful!
I’ll pass you over to Max’s mum………..
I know every parent thinks their baby is special but to us, Max really really is. It was a long complicated journey getting him and we wanted to mark his arrival somehow. Before Max was born Laura took some pregnancy shots and we were blown away by them. Creative but real in equal parts. We wanted the baby shots to follow the same theme. We wanted the photos to reflect a snapshot of real life with Max – not a sugar coated version. Laura just told us to carry on with our normal day, which is just what we did. We think she’s captured our new, emotional, tired, little family perfectly. When I look back at the shots I can feel the raw emotion of those early days. And I’ll always remember Laura in her wellies joining Max in his bath!! Brilliant. Just brilliant.
